Traditional Taekwon-Do in Cyprus
Brief History From 1984 until 1989, Mr. Andreas Shaelis studied sport science in Thessaloniki. During the period he trained under Master Vasilis and Master Alecos Alexandris Traditional Taekwon-Do, Kwon Jae-Hwa. Upon his return Paphos, his home town, he established in September 1989 the first Traditional Taekwon-Do school in Cyprus.One of his first students is today the Traditional Taekwon-Do Grand Master in Cyprus Mr Petros Petrou Agamemnonos.
In November 1993 the first students of Traditional Taekwon-Do received their Black Belt in Paphos. Since 1989 Traditional Taekwon-Do, Cyprus, can show a history of events such as the three visits in Cyprus of the legendary Grand Master Kwon, Jae–Hwa, the organizing of big events and galas with international guests, new school openings, and the participation by our students and masters in events in Korea, Europe and in U.S.A. representing Cyprus.
Modern History From 1989 to 2015, Traditional Taekwon-Do in Cyprus was under a foreign Grand Master. In 2015 the schools in Cyprus became independent and the incorporation of the federation took place.The Federation’s goal is to follow the principles and the philosophy as they are taught by Grand Master Kwon, Jae-Hwa. Today our Federation has about 450 members.
Our Federation is very proud of our Taekwon-Do Family. It is a warm place where dedication, enthusiasm and hard work are in focus. Our schools are a place where people wish to learn Traditional Taekwon-Do, not only as a sport but as a way of life.
